 T4. PICK TESTING WAXES
 

PRICE $695.00 +S&H

 

   
  These are the genuine Dennison Pick Testing Waxes for the evaluation of surface strength on paper and paperboard.  Waxes are heated  and applied to the surface of the sheet.  Once cooled, they are pulled from the surface and the wax is checked to see if it has pulled fiber or coating from the surface.   The highest value wax, which does not rupture the surface, is reported as the pick strength of the sheet.  This traditional test has been used for many years and is well known in all parts of the world.  It is a simple, easy to use, and inexpensive.  Testing Waxes are available in a full test kit, containing one wax of each pick value, heating burner, pull block, instructions, and storage case.  Replacement waxes are sold by the box, 8 waxes of a particular value per box.
